Wealthy students from across the galaxy come to learn at the prestigious academy where Hugo toils as a watchmaker. But he is one of the lucky ones. Many androids like him are jobless and homeless. Someone like Dorian could never understand their struggle – or so Hugo thinks when the pompous duke comes banging at his door. But when Dorian’s broken time-travel watch leads them to discover a sinister scheme, the pair must reconcile their differences if they are to find the culprit in time.

I knew I wanted to buy this before meeting Lauren James again and so I could catch up on her books. It also came with a cute little key on a necklace! She unfortunately couldn’t come to YALC in the end, but I’m still glad I got this gorgeous novella.

It’s 1999 and the internet is still a novelty. At a newspaper office, two colleagues, Beth and Jennifer, e-mail back and forth, discussing their lives in hilarious details, from love troubles to family dramas. And Lincoln, a shy IT guy responsible for monitoring e-mails, spends his hours reading every exchange.
At first their e-mails offer a welcome diversion, but the more he reads, the more he finds himself falling for one of them. By the time Lincoln realises just how head-over-heels he is, it’s too late to introduce himself.
After a series of close encounters, Lincoln eventually decides he must follow his heart… and find out if there is such a thing as love before first sight.

This was the last Rainbow Rowell book I needed to finish my collection, I’m so glad I picked it up in a deal.

For Angel Rahimi, life is only about one thing: The Ark – a pop-rock trio of teenage boys who are currently taking the world by storm. Being part of The Ark’s fandom has given her everything – her friendships, her dreams, her place in the world.
Jimmy Kaga-Ricci owes everything to The Ark too. He’s their frontman – and playing in a band is all he’s ever dreamed of doing. It’s just a shame that recently everything in his life seems to have turned into a bit of a nightmare.
Because that’s the problem with dreaming – eventually, inevitably, real life arrives with a wake-up call. And when Angel and Jimmy are unexpectedly thrust together, they will discover just how strange and surprising facing up to reality can be.

I wanted to buy more of Alice’s books in these paperback editions, but Waterstones actually sold out of a lot just before her signing! I did manage to get my hands on this one, though.

Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the strange bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate – the Hazel Wood – Alice learns how bad her luck can really get. Her mother is stolen away – by a figure who claims to come from the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: STAY AWAY FROM THE HAZEL WOOD. 
To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began . . .

I bought this for a number of reasons:
1) It sounds interesting
2) I’ve heard good things about it
3) That cover!
4) It had a free ARC of American Royals with it

Raised in isolation and home-schooled by her strict grandparents, the only experience Birdie has had of the outside world is through her favourite crime books.
But everything changes when she takes a summer job working the night shift at a historic Seattle hotel.

To uncover the writer’s puzzling identity, Birdie must come out of her shell, and in doing so, realize that the most confounding mystery of all may just be her growing feelings for Daniel
.

I couldn’t help but add this to my haul on Sunday when I saw it for just £2! I’ve loved Night Owls and Alex, Approximately, and I can’t wait to dive into this too.

Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt.
But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process.
Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl–he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to humans. He’s drawn to her anyway. 
With murderous forces lurking in the background, Miyoung and Jihoon develop a tenuous friendship that blossoms into something more. But when a young shaman tries to reunite Miyoung with her bead, the consequences are disastrous . . . forcing Miyoung to choose between her immortal life and Jihoon’s. 

What a beautiful cover and interesting book. Another one that came with a free ARC of my choice.

Misa Sugiura is back with another smartly drawn coming-of-age novel that weaves riveting family drama, surprising humor, and delightful romance into a story that will draw you in from the very first page.
Katsuyamas never quit—but seventeen-year-old CJ doesn’t even know where to start. She’s never lived up to her mom’s type A ambition, and she’s perfectly happy just helping her aunt, Hannah, at their family’s flower shop.She doesn’t buy into Hannah’s romantic ideas about flowers and their hidden meanings, but when it comes to arranging the perfect bouquet, CJ discovers a knack she never knew she had. A skill she might even be proud of.
Then her mom decides to sell the shop — to the family who swindled CJ’s grandparents when thousands of Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps during WWII. Soon a rift threatens to splinter CJ’s family, friends, and their entire Northern California community; and for the first time, CJ has found something she wants to fight for. 

My lovely friend Alex from Library of Books and Tea shared the Illumicrate 3 for £25 deal and I picked up these two. I’d spotted This Time Will Be Different at YALC and I’ve wanted Once & Future since release because I adored You Were Here by Cori McCarthy!

Nick and Charlie are best friends. Nick knows Charlie’s gay, and Charlie is sure that Nick isn’t. 
But love works in surprising ways, and Nick is discovering all kinds of things about his friends, his family … and himself. 
Heartstopper is about friendship, loyalty and mental illness. It encompasses all the small stories of Nick and Charlie’s lives that together make up something larger, which speaks to all of us. 

I was lucky to be able to pick up this too, they sold out pretty quickly and I got one of the very few left when they restocked! I’m so excited to read it soon for my N.E.W.T.s readathon.

In the tropical kingdom of Rhodaire, magical, elemental Crows are part of every aspect of life…until the Illucian empire invades, destroying everything.

And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them. 

Last but not least, I spotted this on the last day for £10 and a free ARC. I had the hardback bookmarked to buy, because it has a beautiful design under the dust jacket, so I couldn’t resist when I saw it!

Hi everyone! I had so many books from YALC that these posts are going to have to be done in two parts. Today I’m going to talk about all of the books I was given, ARCs I won or ARCs I got as buying incentives! And next week, I’ll be discussing books I actually bought outright.

Humanity has nearly destroyed its world through global warming, but now an even greater evil lurks. The indigenous people of North America are being hunted and harvested for their bone marrow, which carries the key to recovering something the rest of the population has lost: the ability to dream. In this dark world, Frenchie and his companions struggle to survive as they make their way up north to the old lands. For now, survival means staying hidden but what they don’t know is that one of them holds the secret to defeating the marrow thieves. 

This lovely author was giving away beautiful copies of her book to bloggers and vloggers! I was lucky enough to catch her and ask for a copy.

Selah has waited her whole life for a happily ever after. As the only daughter of the leader of Potomac, she knows her duty is to find the perfect match, a partner who will help secure the future of her people. Now that day has finally come.
But after an excruciatingly public rejection from her closest childhood friend, Selah’s stepmother suggests an unthinkable solution: Selah must set sail across the Atlantic, where a series of potential suitors awaits—and if she doesn’t come home engaged, she shouldn’t come home at all.
From English castle gardens to the fjords of Norge, and under the eye of the dreaded Imperiya Yotne, Selah’s quest will be the journey of a lifetime. But her stepmother’s schemes aren’t the only secrets hiding belowdecks…and the stakes of her voyage may be higher than any happy ending.

I managed to pick this up in a Fairyloot giveaway and it sounds so interesting.

Piper helps Ava reclaim the pieces of Ava Before the Fire, a normal girl who kissed boys and sang on stage.

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren’t just any royals. They’re American. And their country was born of rebellion.
As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.

High school senior Frank Li is a Limbo–his term for Korean-American kids who find themselves caught between their parents’ traditional expectations and their own Southern California upbringing. His parents have one rule when it comes to romance–“Date Korean”–which proves complicated when Frank falls for Brit Means, who is smart, beautiful–and white. Fellow Limbo Joy Song is in a similar predicament, and so they make a pact: they’ll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks it’s the perfect plan, but in the end, Frank and Joy’s fake-dating maneuver leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love–or himself–at all. 

Penguin gave both of these away with purchases over the weekend, so I nabbed them both at different points!

Twelve-year-old Jeanne Ann has doubts when her mom spends their savings on an old orange van and bundles them off to San Francisco to chase Mom’s dream of working as a chef. There, they camp on the street while her mother looks for a job she never gets. Before long, Jeanne Ann realizes that this van is the closest thing she has to a home.
Across the road, twelve-year-old Cal watches the homeless community parked just beyond his big house. Cal’s mom is busy with the upscale restaurant she owns, but they’ve always been close–until Cal does something his mom just doesn’t understand.
Then Cal and Jeanne Ann meet. Cal is too tall and too weird and too rich and wears all his emotions on the outside of his skin, and he just wants to help. Jeanne Ann is smart, she is funny, she is stubborn–hers is a royal-looking chin, in
Cal’s opinion–and she does not want his help. But a quirky, meaningful friendship develops between them, and as it does, the pair is buoyed by a remarkable cast of nuanced, oddball characters, who let them down and lift them up. When Jeanne Annn’s situation worsens, though, and Cal’s desire to help gets the better of him, will their friendship survive? And without it, can either of them find their way through this mess?

Pixie’s defenses are up, and it’s no wonder. She’s been uprooted, the chickens seem to have it in for her, and now her beloved sister, Charlotte, has been stricken with polio and whisked away into quarantine. So it’s not surprising Pixie lashes out. But her habit of making snap judgements–and giving her classmates nicknames like “Rotten Ricky” and “Big-Mouth Berta”–hasn’t won her any friends. At least life on the farm is getting better with the delivery of its newest resident–a runt baby lamb. Raising Buster takes patience and understanding–and this slowing down helps Pixie put things in better perspective. So too does paying attention to her neighbors, and finding that with the war on she’s not the only one missing someone. As Pixie pushes past her own pain to become a bigger person, she’s finally able to make friends; and to laugh about the fact that it is in places where she least expected it.

I’m not going to lie, I was very drawn to the covers of both of these books!

In this mesmerizing sequel to the New York Times bestselling Girls of Paper and Fire, Lei and Wren have escaped their oppressive lives in the Hidden Palace, but soon learn that freedom comes with a terrible cost.
Lei, the naive country girl who became a royal courtesan, is now known as the Moonchosen, the commoner who managed to do what no one else could. But slaying the cruel Demon King wasn’t the end of the plan—it’s just the beginning. Now Lei and her warrior love Wren must travel the kingdom to gain support from the far-flung rebel clans. The journey is made even more treacherous thanks to a heavy bounty on Lei’s head, as well as insidious doubts that threaten to tear Lei and Wren apart from within.
Meanwhile, an evil plot to eliminate the rebel uprising is taking shape, fueled by dark magic and vengeance. Will Lei succeed in her quest to overthrow the monarchy and protect her love for Wren, or will she fall victim to the sinister magic that seeks to destroy her?

I’m not going to lie, this is the best thing I managed to get my hands on over the whole weekend and was totally worth the entire hour I spent queuing to get it! I can’t wait to read it.

So those are the books I managed to get at YALC other than buying! See you next week for books I bought!

Let’s Discuss! YALC 2019

Hi everyone! It’s time for my YALC 2019 masterpost, where I’ll take you through everything I did over the weekend, day by day. For those of you that don’t know, YALC is the Young Adult Literature Convention which takes place alongside London Film and Comic Con every year! This year was my first year going for the whole weekend, as I’ve been before but only for one day per event.

THURSDAY

Okay, Thursday was a day for travelling and it was hellish. Due to the insane heatwave we had in the UK, we managed to get one of the only trains going down to London and just about got out of the station before they stopped letting people in due to health hazards! We eventually made it down and luckily had a better and safer journey than some. We met up with Alex and Dan who we stayed at a hotel with and had some dinner before preparing for the next day!

FRIDAY

Panels: none
Authors met: Renee Ahdieh, Alice Oseman
Books acquired: 8

Unfortunately we didn’t make it to any panels on Friday due to just being so busy running around and entering giveaways and meeting authors! We still had the most incredible day, gathered more books than we all meant to and met some great people. Alice Oseman ended up staying for an hour and a half more than she was scheduled for to finish off her line of people!

SATURDAY

Panels: Mythical YA, The World of Illustration and Concept Art
Authors met: VE Schwab, Karen M McManus, Jim Kay, Malorie Blackman
Books acquired: 4

Saturday was so much fun and we managed to get in on a few panels! I bought fewer books and even went down to Comic Con, which was insanely busy and made me very grateful for how chilled out YALC is. What a beautiful building though!

SUNDAY

Panels: New Voices of YA Fantasy
Authors met: Lisa Heathfield, Samantha Shannon, Temi Oh, Kristen Ciccarelli, Natasha Ngan
Books acquired: 5

We ended up getting up way earlier for the final day to make sure we got everything we wanted. Unfortunately we missed out yet again on an ARC of Infinity Son but got early VQ tickets for the authors we wanted! We managed to meet every author we wanted to other than Lauren James who unfortunately couldn’t make it. I also picked up an ARC I really wanted, Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan, and had it signed!

That’s the day by day account! To finish up, below you can see (from the left), a pile of books I took to have signed, books I bought, books (already released) I acquired, and ARCs I won or got as buying incentives. What an amazing haul! I’ll be posting Stacking the Shelves twice this week, Friday for ARCs and Saturday for books I bought.

Not pictured above are books I bought for my boyfriend Josh and my bestie Courtney, and the items below, a cute bookish candle from Bookish Burns entitled The Shire, and a rainbow bathbomb from Geeky Clean!

And before I go, I’d like to share some photos of my YALC squad. From the left, we have Anna, Faye, me, Alex and her boyfriend Dan! These guys have been incredible from start to finish, made my weekend so much more enjoyable and full of laughter. Can’t wait for next year!

I chose today’s quote because of one of my YALC highlights, managing to get an ARC of Girls of Storm and Shadow! So today’s quote is from one of my favourite books of the year so far, Girls of Paper and Fire.

Let’s Discuss! Planning for YALC 2019

Hi everyone! I keep seeing these posts and really wanted to add my own tips and tricks, so here we are.

I’m lucky enough to be going to YALC for all 3 days this year! I’ve been twice before, but only for one day at a time. This year it’s become possible to go for the whole weekend so I took my chance. I didn’t want to write this post from the prospective of something I know loads about as I haven’t done the whole weekend before, so instead I’m just going to lead you through what I’m doing in the lead up to the big weekend. Posts I’ve found helpful while planning are this one at Connie Reads and this one at For the Love of Books!

What’s YALC?

YALC stands for the Young Adult Literature Convention and is probably the biggest YA event we have in the UK. It takes place at London Olympia as part of London Film and Comic Convention, or LFCC. The convention is full of stalls, authors, publishers, workshops and talks.

1.Organise your travel beforehand

This is a big one for me. I’m staying at a hotel that’s a short tube ride away from the convention hall itself, and I’m having to get down to London on a train and a few tubes. I’ve actually never been on the tube in my life and it absolutely terrifies me! To prepare, I’ve done full research on how I’ll be getting there, home and to and from the convention hall each day.

2. Pack well and plan what to take

Of course I’m prioritising books and will be taking a suitcase for my books and a backpack for clothes (because of course clothes are less important). Luckily as YALC is in the summer I can travel fairly lightly! Each day I will either take my suitcase to YALC with me for my books, or my backpack, depending on how many books I need to have signed that day. I’ll also take a fair number of tote bags for extra purchases!

3. Take food and water

Food in London, and the Olympia, is expensive. YALC has a small cafe and have confirmed on Twitter this cafe has facilities to refill water bottles for FREE. I believe the Olympia itself (on lower levels) also has fountains. I’m eating breakfast at my hotel, taking food for in the day and having dinner out. If you need somewhere cheap for snacks or lunch, stop at the Tesco Express opposite the venue!

4. Make use of your ticket

This may sound like a stupid thing to suggest, of course you’re going to use your ticket! But what many people may not realise is that on the floors below you, London Film and Comic Convention is happening and if you’re into that stuff, it’s brilliant. It’s free to enter with your ticket so if you have a lull in the day (hard to find, but still), make sure you go and have a wander around if you can.

5. Take cash

This is one of the things I’m really going to prioritise this year. Many of the stallholders will take card I’m sure but having cash will be so helpful! It’ll also help me budget, as I’d like to stick to the cash I take out (let’s see how well that goes).

6. Check the schedules, and the floor plan

The YALC programmes are now available here, and the floor plan will be available at this link. I’d recommend printing these off before you leave, and circling/highlighting signings and events you want to attend.

7. Use Twitter (and other social media)

Social media is definitely your friend when it comes to YALC. I’m going to be turning on notifications for the publishers that are there, so when they tweet about ARCs/competitions I should see it right away! I’ll also have notifications on for YALC, the venue and my favourite authors, so I can know of any changes or unforeseen circumstances. If I can, I might also pick up a portable charger to make sure my phone stays charged for the whole day!

8. Take a notebook

I have a little notebook and pen handy to take with me, which already has lists of authors I want to see and my full itinerary for travelling.

9. Wear loose, light clothes and comfortable shoes

I cannot stress this enough. Yes, there are places to sit down and chill. If I recall, some of these in previous years haven’t been all that great (beanbag chairs in the chill out zone etc). But the reality is, you’re going to be on your feet, queuing and walking for most of the day. The venue is also HOT, with a glass roof!

Still have questions? Drop them below or check the official YALC FAQ. And if you see me over the weekend, come and say hi!

YALC is this week. I repeat. THIS. WEEK.

Hi all! Sometimes, isn’t it great to buy books knowing you’re not adding to your TBR? I have around 70 unread books, so it’s a relief sometimes to know I won’t be adding to it!

Today’s books are one’s I’ve already read because they’re the illustrated editions of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. They’re both so beautiful and I’m excited to meet the illustrator in a few weeks at YALC.
